Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is privately urging Republicans to back Donald Trump, even while he is still publicly criticizing the presumptive GOP nominee, reports The Hill.
Graham, who once described Trump as “all-over-the-board crazy” and “unfit for office”, urged GOP donors at a private fundraiser Saturday to unite behind Trump, CNN reports.
“He did say that we need to get behind him,” Teresa Dailey, a prominent Florida Republican who attended the event, told CNN.
The Hill notes:
Graham has seemed to warm up to Trump slightly since early May, accepting a phone call from the businessman recently ago to discuss national security.
“I gave him my assessment about where we stand in the fight against [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] and the long-term danger posed by the Iranian nuclear deal. He asked good questions," Graham said.In the end is Trump just one of them?
